    There is no way to tell, without feedback in detail from the seller, (Ask Seller a Question), or having the unit in front of you to diagnose. Most main computer problems stem from a bad Power On switch, (Located inside the Power On button), a failed Power Supply, or a computer (And Power Supply) that is dirty inside. HOWEVER, there could have been a lightning strike nearby, and burned the Power Supply out, and didn't stop there. May have burned out the Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, and Graphics Card, if used. (Even the Harddrive in some instances)

Loose contact in power supply or the video socket at the desktop or the monitor. Just move the cable around and if the problem recurs then it's either the power or video cable problem.

My computer's motherboard light turns on but the computer itself will not start.

With this symptoms almost sure Power Supply died.

Try to substitute for a new one, at least to test.

Good luck

2 things come to mind when I hear this; the case fans or the power supply fans. I would check those first to see if they are the problem.
